i could have lived here?

Roger could have been the friendly giant?


A few miles from Puerto Telchac where we were staying are the Xcambo Ruins. Along the way we were able to stop and see the pink flamingos. They are a very graceful bird and they seem to strut slowly as they interact among themselves. We snapped alot of pictures here and probably spent a good half hour watching them.

Xcambo Ruins are considered small and not so interesting but we enjoyed them and had them all to ourselves so Tuxedo was evenable to come in with us. Not sure if i had mentioned in my previous post of Puerto Telchac but we had met a young man named David who has lived in the area his whole life. He was trying to teach us some basic spanish and we decided that we would ask him to come on some of our day trips with us. He could translate for us when needed as he spoke fairly good english and he could tell us many things about the area and culture. David was more than happy to come along with us.

We explored various low lying structures that are surrounded by two plazas. On a clear day you can see the coast from the highest point which is the pyramid of the cross. More than 600 skeletons were unearthed here during excavation, but there is no museum and the reconstruction was overzealous, leaving the ruins somewhat artificial looking. There is a Catholic chappel on a small rise nearby that was built from stones of the dismantled ruins.
